Healthy Veges Just Don't Grow In Dirt!!!
Healthy veges grow in living soil. These are soils rich in organic humus, minerals and all the nutrients that plants love.
Some statistics still are beyond me but any soil scientist knows that there are more living microbes in a handfull of living soil than there are people on our planet.
We all know where the problem lies. Chemical fertilisers, chemical pesticides, chemical fungicides, chemical herbicides are pure poison for the microbes living in the soil. The end-point is dirt, aka, dead soil.
Vast areas of our Australian farmlands are biologically dead. Our heavy reliance on chemicals has turned living soil into dirt and we continue to pump more and more expensive chemicals into the soil to feed the nation.
The picture opposite is a pile of composted cow poo in Dave's backyard with a head of steam.
There are billions of living mictrobes working in this pile of poo and they generate energy that heats the soil to the point of releasing steam.
This is rich, living compost from cows raised and fed on chemical-free farms. There's simply no better compost for backyard gardeners anywhere.
